I'm also wondering why so many people got obsessed with Korean culture.
But Korean culture is definitely not the most appreciated culture by Asians.

Since the Full House hit the Thai TV, there has been a Korean culture craze in Thailand. I think it's the same in many Asian country, what do you think Koreans have that other Asians don't have?

For me, it's because I like Korean language, and they are very good musicians. They make great dramas with very attrative people in them. That's about it.

How do you think?


I respect your opinion here. But what I want to know is, based on the topic title ("Why Do You Think Asian People Appreciate Korean Culture (dramas/music, etc.) More Than Any Other Asians?"), how have you assumed that Korean culture is the most appreciated by other Asians? Many people I know actually prefer Japanese, Chinese and Thai culture over Korean.

Which is exactly why I HATE and shy AWAY from the Korean entertainment. Foreign artists aren't allowed to do many things there. The K Industry is very closed minded when it comes to other country's artists debuted in their country compared to Japan's or Taiwan's industry.

Which is why a while back when I heard some DBSK fans complaining about Japan being racists towards them, I thought what about Korea, no non korean artist who be able to overcome as much as they did b/c Korea's industry is too closed minded

This is one of the main reasons(other than DBSK and BoA) I like the Japanese and Taiwanese industry better than the Korean one.


I would have to disagree. japanese entertainers are very popular in japan, especially alot of people recognizes arashi, smap, and etc. The only group from taiwan that I would recognize would be F4. but hongkong movies are popular too. Its not that we;re close minded but they have high standards and its a competitive atmosphere.

also most people would try to debut in japan because they're like the leaders of the asian entertainment world but also korea works hard to promote their artist and actors, they try to maintain friendly relationships with other countries.

Almost EVERYTHING falls under the "culture" umbrella, so your "have absolutely nothing else going for them" remark was utter uselessness.


ok.

1) I was being facetious.
2) Politics and economics do not fall under the "culture" umbrella. Both of which, the two Koreas are having major problems with. And well, North Korea is currently getting shit for thier socio-cultural practices too, so they really do have absolutely nothing going for them.

and they talk about all their korena dramas and songs all the time.
its hard to describe, but you can tell they have this whole korean pride...
its kinda funny sometimes actually

Uhh thats because chinese and japanese isnt a language thats widely spoken out side of that country.
and niether is korean.
And i think its korean is more known world wide because its essier to learn english, than if japanese was your 1st language.
and because k-pop is really modernized... like american music.
i really honestly like korean a lot more because its the first thing i got exposed to.

ive noticed that many have just commented on japan and korea and forgetting the rest of the asian countries like china, india, vietnam, thailand, etc.
reasons may be that
1. they are not as affluent as s.korea and japan
2.they are perserving their folk culture and that does not appeal to the young people nowadays

personally, i like chinese stuff, with their own twist of fei zhu liu(chinese version of ulzzangs), the food, and the sort of style that chinese people can call their own w/o the mass of people doing the same thing-but b/c that is not pop culture, not many people know much about it
additionally, their drama is usually not like the korean ones, with the heavy ladden romance tht girls fawn over but more of raditional themes

many find the korean/japanese most attractive compared to the rest of the asians countries, but chinese people have the traditional mindset of natural beauty; if an actress wore too much makeup or recieve a simple nose job, the rest of the chinese viewers woufind her unappealling, unattractive, and most importantly, fake.

i remember going to an asian event where 99% of the people there were either japanese , chinese, or korean, but the jp/kn mothers had a lot of makeup on yet the chinese ones had little to none

jp/kn are capitalists but the chinese are communist, which does not appeal to nations such as the U.S and therefore less appealing(?)

I don't know if many are addicted..but I surely am one..lol

I first watched Hong Kong series, then Taiwanese, then Korean, then Japanese..
but I have Korean's the most...i think bc of my interest in their romance storylines...then thats when I started favoring korean music over others too...

so it just depends on the person..but hi 5 for liking koreans too ^^

im not too sure xDD koreans are great musicians (i love all their music...well most of it anyway :3, and they might not seem that hot at first, but u get used to them and they're all u can see xDD eh thats so confusing but i used to appreciate japanese culture more, but i found that kind of strict ._. plus korean style is sort of similar to north american styles. guys celebrities r pimped out xD

if u look deeper into it, japan and south korea are both capitalists (like the US) which makes their political views similar to americans = the rest of us countries like north korea and china r communists so they're more restricted and much likely less technological-ish than the other countries. south korea and japan are rising and part of that would be the entertainment industry.....so maybe thats why everyone's attention is drawn to them? eh im not even sure if thats right but i heard somethin like that in geo class xD

^SK is not a technologically advanced country. Both Japan and SK are capitalists cause they got dominated by the US so their whole system had to change. China is pretty much technologically advanced itself. They just have an image of cheap labor.

For Japan, they have always been on the rise, as for Korea, the only thats on the rise for them is their entertainment.
